Men are so competitive that we even "out-die" women in all 15 of the major causes of death in the U.S. Most of these deaths are preventable with a positive change in life-style, eating habits, and/or general health care. Let's not strive so hard to hold on to this record. See what you can change now to live a healthier life.

About What's Under the Icon at Top

Clad in tight, beaded corsets that indicate their position in the age set system, two Dinka friends walk among the herd. First fitted at puberty, the color-coded corsets are everyday wear for most Dinka males. They are sewn in place and removed only when the wearer is promoted to a new age set. The red-and-blue corset on the right is worn by men of fifteen to twenty-five years of age, and the yellow-and-blue by those over thirty, indicating that the wearer is ready for marriage. Each Dinka herder is named after his "namesake ox," which he receives at puberty and adopts as a soulmate for life. Sudan. Men of the African Ark calendar, Pomegranate
